November is Native American Heritage Month! Join us in honoring the diverse cultures, traditions, and contributions of Native Americans, weaving a vibrant tapestry that enriches the fabric of our nation.
This month serves as an opportunity to learn, appreciate, and share stories that echo through generations. Locally, Georgetown’s heritage is that of the Tonkawa tribe. Learn more about them here.
